Several Airlines Bent the Rules and Helped Evacuate Animals After Wildfires Hit Canada
The city of Alberta, Canada is having a rough time right now thanks to a few out of control wild fires. The fires have caused the entire city of Fort McMurray to evacuate in early May. The evacuation resulted in 80,000 people temporarily finding shelter with over 2,000 structures being destroyed. Along with the people who needed to be relocated, many animals found themselves without a place to go since many airlines make traveling with an animal very complicated.

Some of the flights hosted up to 30 different animals.— Jen C (@jencme35) May 6, 2016
